Grant, C, Price, D, Meskimmon, M (2020) [Contribution to] Decolonizing art history, A range of art historians, curators and artists were asked to respond to a series of questions that consider some of the recent calls to ‘decolonize art history’. Marsha Meskimmon was one of the 30 contributors to this article who responded to the following questions: What is the historical specificity of current calls to decolonize art history? How are they different from previous challenges to the discipline (such as postcolonialism, feminism, queer studies, Marxism)? What is your understanding of decolonizing art history now? What does a decolonized art history look like? How should it be written/practised? How might the decolonization of art history impact upon your own area of research/practice? What would be produced from it? Might anything have to be jettisoned? Where should decolonization in relation to art history happen? What strategies might different spaces for decolonization demand?.
